Feds forced to admit that it’s legal to take pictures of federal buildings

Feds forced to admit that it’s legal to take pictures of federal buildings

The New York Civil Liberties Union and Libertarian activist Antonio Musumeci just won a court case that affirms the right of photographers to take pictures and record video out front of federal courthouses. The US federal government settled the case by apologizing to Musumeci for his arrest, acknowledging that it is legal to record at [...]

The True Size of Africa

The True Size of Africa

I'm no cartographer, so I can't comment on its accuracy... but this alternative visualization of the size of the African continent compared to various world nations is thought-provoking.

Lockheed Martin sign prohibits sketching and “gathering information”

Lockheed Martin sign prohibits sketching and “gathering information”

An anonymous photographer snapped this delightful pic of a way minatory sign on the chain-link outside a Lockheed-Martin factory. I love that they prohibit "gathering of information" -- I wonder what Claude Shannon would have to say about that. I'd love to see the court case, in any event, provided I wasn't the defendant.

Doctor Who references were made. Personal commutes seemed less terrible by comparison. According to that BBC story, Chinese state TV reported that [...]

Another Easter Island solar eclipse photo was suggested by a reader. Another fantastic photo. I like this one better (by Juan Carlos Casado): http://www.twanight.org/newTWAN/photos.asp?ID=3002605 Also, make sure you check out Guisard's shots of Easter Island at night here and here. Something about those ancient sentinels silently staring into [...]

The Abandoned Palace on Beekman Street

The Abandoned Palace on Beekman Street

How the hell does something this beautiful stay abandoned for so long? Was the owner just like, "Ehh, I don't really feel like making BOATLOADS right now. I'll wait half a century first." 5 Beekman Street has a secret. You’ve probably passed it a million times in your travels through downtown Manhattan. Anyone who has ever visited J&R [...]
